Petition To UN For Resolution To Decriminalize Homosexuality Goes On-Line
A petition calling for UN Resolution to decriminalize homosexuality world-wide went on-line Friday (November 17). It is being coordinated by the international anti-homophobia group IDAHO (International Day Against Homophobia).
The petition, IDAHO’s UK coordinator Derek Lennard said Thursday, has already got the support – and signatures – of hundreds of well-known personalities ranging from former Archbishop of Cape Town Desmond Tutu to Hollywood star Meryl Streep and pop legend David Bowie.
Among the politicians already signed-up are Michel Cashman, the president of the European Parliament’s ‘intergroup’ on gay and lesbian rights, and Bertrand Delanoë, the openly gay mayor of Paris.
And leading the diplomats is Thomas Hammarberg, the Commissioner for Human Rights at the Council of Europe in Strasbourg...WATCH the iDAHO ANTI-HOMOPHOBIA SPOT?
